Commercial Flat Roofing
Flat roofs are best for larger buildings where a pitched roof would be costly and more difficult to maintain. It has the added benefit of creating extra space for large heating and air conditioning units. You can also utilize this space for the creation of a rooftop lounge area or garden. Many of the materials used in flat roof installation are highly energy efficient, because they reflect light away from the building and reduce heat absorption.
Maintenance will be required to make sure debris or water does not accumulate and cause problems. It is important that flat roof styles are installed in a way that allows for proper drainage during wet weather.
Flat Roofing Materials
There are a few different options available for a flat roof. One popular method is single-ply roofing. This involves the use of a single layer of material for waterproofing and weather protection. Materials used for single-ply roofing include:
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin)
These are highly popular materials, thanks to their durability, lack of maintenance requirements, and easy repairs.
Another style of flat roofs is built-up roofing. This method uses materials such as tar, asphalt, or modified bitumen to add several layers and increase the durability of a roof. Since multiple layers of material are used, the roof is much more reliable in protection from the weather. Finding leaks, however, can be extremely difficult in built-up roofs.
